Home / All Ski Instructors / Instructor in Zermatt / Max Clavbo Pettersson
Max is one of our few Swedish instructors that we have in Zermatt. You will find him all over the mountain along the winter and spring but mostly in the snowpark when the snow conditions call for it.

Max is a person full of energy that is open to challenge himself when ever possible and to push others  outside of their comfort zone. He is a strong believer in “Happyfeet = Happyski”

Why did you chose to teach skiing?

I chose to teach skiing because it is my favourite hobby and I am so lucky to have been able to study it in college and to work with ski instructing just like my mom. She was my first ski instructor.

What do you do in the Summer?

During the summer I work in contact with people, whether it is in a sport-shop or as an activity leader for kids. I also go back to the Swiss Army to complete my service.

Where is your favourite part of Zermatt to ski?

In Verbier it has to be Tortin because I do love my mogulskiing and in Zermatt it has to be The Top of Rothorn to Gant, then all the way down to Cervo via National.

What is your favourite restaurant in Zermatt?

Findlerhof hands down. Lammhaxe is love, lammhaxe is life.

Why did you pick Zermatt?

I wanted to come back after having an amazing last season and not wanting to return to Sweden (although I could have). The long amazing slopes, the amazing people and the amazing town.

What handy tip do you have for anyone visiting Zermatt?

Ski every day, even if it isn’t sunny, after a couple of runs, go to Cervo and enjoy the struffle fries. It never goes wrong.
